Speaking to Claudia on Saturday morning, Wilfred said: ‘I’ve got some good advice. I’d say, Traitors – Make friends with each other.

‘What we did in the castle we didn’t even speak! We were so scared, and then we had trust issues! 

‘And the thing is when I watch it back, I go, “Yeah I don’t know how the game ends, [Amanda] is going to steal, I don’t know what’s happening…” and I got really paranoid.

‘It weren’t until I watched it back when I realised, she weren’t saying none of that!’

She admitted feeling worried that she would be risking Meryl and Aaron’s split of cash if she made the wrong call. 

Hannah said: ‘I had absolutely no idea, when you look at Meryl and Aaron’s faces you just think, do I risk it?

‘At that firepit, I felt like I had all the control. I knew Meryl would just do anything I did. I knew Aaron would stick with us. It was a really weird moment because I never had that.’

It comes after the BBC is reportedly planning a celebrity version of The Traitors after the first series of the reality competition was a hit with viewers.
